From sources, HP is planning several new Mini (Note) netbooks for 2009/2010 – An 11.6 inch LED display Mini is on track to be launched this summer which will be “not much larger” than the current HP Mini 2133/2140 netbooks and may use a different Atom processor from the current N270 in the Mini 1000/2140. There will also be another model, slated for later this year in the 3rd quarter and a Mini Note tablet currently being at the “concept […]

It’s been almost two whole years since Windows Vista was released and more than two years that we’ve been hearing the endless criticisms and statements shooting down the operating system. No doubt Apple’s “Get a Mac” ads (whose nature subsequently turned into “constant anti-Vista preaching”) have played a large role in diluting people’s minds and implanting the idea that Windows Vista is crappy. Most of the time, many small issues in Vista get over exaggerated into huge problems.
And what’s worse […]
Hey! I thought this was a HP Fansite?! What’s the Sony Vaio P doing here? True, but that still doesn’t stop me from posting a picture of probably one of the most hyped up products of 2009 and comparing it against the HP Mini, does it? It’s not mine anyway, neither am I even having the slightest thought of getting one (1. It’s way overpriced for what it REALLY is, and 2. It really doesn’t offer much over the HP […]
In my previous write-ups about HP’s Elitebook 8730w this month, I provided some battery life figures for the 8730w Mobile Workstation when doing various tasks and also talked about the Elitebook’s gaming abilities. And now, we come to the Elitebook 8730w’s performance figures and noise. Again, here’s the configuration on the HP Elitebook 8730w I used for testing: Intel Centrino 2 (Core 2 Duo) T9400 2.53 GHz processor, 4 GB of RAM (2 X 2 GB), 17 inch […]
Is Voodoo PC working on bringing out their own phone/smartphone? Information right now is very scarce and it still remains a mystery IF there will be a such thing (Since Voodoo PC so far has been strictly a (gaming) computer company). The last time someone brought up the topic of a Voodoo phone would be Rob Enderle in his article published in September 2008. Recently, there have been some little, little things which hint a Voodoo phone again.
Today Mark […]
Based on my extensive usage and testing of the HP Elitebook 8730w (2.53 GHz dual core, 4 GB RAM, 17 inch DreamColor screen, Windows Vista Business, Nvidia Quadro FX3700M 1GB workstation graphics) since November, I’ve come up with a list of battery life numbers that can be achieved using this Mobile Workstation notebook PC. Using the included primary battery:
Gaming – 1 hour (Display at the brightest setting, high performance mode)
Graphics rendering – 1 hour 30 minutes
Adobe Photoshop CS4 continuous use […]
Besides running Photoshop CS4 and other heavy duty applications, I’ve found the HP Elitebook 8730w Mobile Workstation fairly adept at gaming, to a certain extent. That’s what I’ve been doing throughout most of last month: gaming on HP’s Elitebook 8730w.
Before I go on, let me give you guys a run down of the specifications on the one I managed to test out:
Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 2.53 GHz
4 GB of RAM (2 X 2 GB)
17 inch Dream Color display (1920 […]
If you thought huge notebooks like the HP Elitebook 8730w or HP HDX “Dragon” were huge, you can add another notebook from HP to the list: the HP+Voodoo Firefly concept aka the “Mobile Blackbird“. This thing features a main 17 inch display AND a secondary 4.3 inch display below the main one. In addition, the Mobile Blackbird packs a Core 2 Extreme processor, 5.1 speaker system, dual ATI graphics card and what looks like FOUR headphone jacks in […]
